Old Bank on Bastimentos is about as laid back a place as you could imagine. It's fairly basic, with stray dogs and children freely running around. Feels friendly and hassle free. Caribbean View is high end for here, with A/C, ensuite bathrooms and a nice deck for meals, plus breezy upper deck for relaxing. It's used by small tour groups of 10 or 12.
Rooms upstairs have balconies, good for sitting out watching village life in all its colour. Or the sun come up.
Food good from a limited menu, but they made off menu veggie meals for me too. Clean and well run, service not fast but we're not here to rush around.
The whole family works here, and they give it a friendly atmosphere. They'll hail boats to go to beaches or other islands, and generally look after you.
